WWE Superstar Sheamus believes that Ridge Holland was not given a chance to prove himself
Ridge Holland has recently been criticized by fans on social media because they believe he is not safe in the ring with his opponents.
During a recent interview with The Metro, Sheamus said that he believes that the 35-year-old wrestler is an amazing athlete and added that Ridge was not given the proper opportunity to show what he can give.
“I think Ridge was put in a situation where he was damaged a little bit. People said it was dangerous and stuff. “Ridge is an amazing athlete, he’s very smooth in the ring and what happened was not good, but I feel that he was not given the right opportunity to show what he can do.”
